*PREVIOUS TURN NEWS*

     Welcome to the new format of the SYP!  Last turn was an exciting one, so lets
skip the pleasantries and get right at the relevant news from last turn.
     Double D's:  Out with the old and in with the new . . . or better yet a new old
one.  Dagrdraug goes off to the Isle of the Eye in defeat as Dexter took a successful
shot for the exalted DM throne.  The style match up was an obvious advantage to
Dexter, but if you will remember, Dagrdraug had to dethrone an Aimed Blow to get the
seat in the first place.  No doubt it was an interesting fight for both parties.
Congrats to Dagrdraug for making it to the Isle and congrats to our new Duelmaster
Dexter and his pending trip to ADM also.
     Killer TP wanted for Questioning:  I know the title looks like a contradiction,
but one of the more interesting stories from last turn was a Total Parry killing of a
Striker.  It was an obvious down challenge, but that does nothing to detract from the
weirdness of this story.  By Kellumbo's own admission on the D2 Boards, Tyra was
running with a 10 KD.  He also appears to be lacking in remorse for the killing.  We
will watch with interest DeGotti's response to the death of Xinu.  [More on this
story in the Warrior of the Cycle section.]
     Where Have All the Off-Styles Gone?:  A quick glance at the Shadowspire
newsletter will reveal that the 5 most popular styles are Total Parry, Striker,
Lunger, Aimed Blow, and Wall of Steel.  They make up nearly 70% of the arena's
warriors.  The other 30% are languishing as Bashers, Slashers, Pikers, Plungers, and
Rippers.  This editor can certainly understand why managers would gravitate to the
big 5.  They are generally easy to run, Aimed Blows and Wastes arguably being
exceptions, and they match up well with many other styles.  However, the tendency to
limit oneself to only 50% of the playable field is perplexing.  When will a Piker sit
upon the throne of Shadowspire?  Will a Ripper ever tear through the arena and be the
envy of all others?  Time will tell, but as of right now, the chances are low such a
warrior is going to make an appearance any time soon.
     Who Will Be Next?:  Dexter is on his way to the Isle, so who will rise to take
his place.  We will watch with interest, but the SYP believes that Tyra and Moose
Drool are in the best position for the Title.  With the heavily loaded "defensive-
minded" Challenger Champions, Dexter has the advantage of picking from a long list of
possible challenges.  If Dexter wins, the SYP thinks Tyra will slip into the throne.
If Moose Drool and Pauly are paying attention and are able to slip in a challenge for
the throne, Moose Drool will be our new DM.  Who did you pick and were you right?

*EDITORIAL*

     Shadowspire is nearing the half-century mark, but excitement is still high among
the arena participants.  We are an experiment of sorts, albeit a successful
experiment, in the realm of nostalgia.  Could the atmosphere of Duelmasters from the
early days be recaptured?  I think 48 turns into this "experiment" we can give a
resounding YES!  Has it been a problem free trip?  No, not by any stretch of the
imagination, but rarely is anything of interest problem free.  Enjoy this thriving
arena and be thankful that such an arena exists.  Invite your friends and family to
join us and lets all strive to make the next 50 more memorable that the last 50!
     Hope you remembered to VOTE!

*WARRIOR OF THE CYCLE*

     The inaugural warrior of the cycle will be given out to two warriors.  The first
goes to Tyra.  A kill, in and of itself, is not that spectacular.  When it involves
warriors beyond the champion's level it may raise a few eye brows.  However, when it
meets those criteria and the killer is a TP, it bears noticing.
     The second award goes to Gohl Hum.  There is no greater drag to your day than
getting the notice your manager is sending you to fight by torch light.  It is worth
noting when you come back for the death walk.  Next turn may see Gohl Hum back in the
Dark Arena, but for this turn he is a star.

*LOTTERY GAME*

     This turn's winning numbers are 3-8-13-20-59.
     Remember, all you have to do to play is post a personal ad addressed to the SYP
LOTTERY and signed with your TEAM NAME (not your managerial name).  We do this to
insure we identify each submission, each team only makes 1 submission, and we have
all the information we need to diplo the winnings.
     We failed to announce the prize for picking the right numbers.  If you pick all
5 numbers correctly, you will win 1 RU Cert, compliments of the SYP.  We will only
honor winning numbers that are posted in this newsletter and in the proper format (in
short, we cannot honor late posts or those that do not follow the posted rules for
submission).

*RECORDS*

     Below you will find the complete win/loss/kill records for each style over the
first 40 turns.  These are taken directly from the NL, so there is no spin on the
numbers.  We don't really see any surprises in the totals, though we will point out a
large discrepancy in the style selection for this arena.  I also believe the inflated
kill percentage for Rippers and Pikers is a result of the small data sample.  I think
when they reach the 1000 fight threshhold we will get a clearer picture as to their
killing tendencies, or at the very least, the killing tendencies of managers in
Shadowspire.

*OBITUARIES*

     There isn't much to report this turn in terms of death that has not already been
discussed.  It appears the old adage, "Live by the sword, Die by the sword" hold true
as 2 of the 3 non-DA deaths happened to warriors with 2 kills.  There were 9 DA
deaths this turn, with 1 of them being a DA monster.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

Welly, welly well!  I made the challenge knowing that if it went through I had a
great chance at the throne before I left for the Isle.  Sure enough, my challenge
worked out.  I am the first of Tripwire's warriors to get the throne and the second
to graduate.  My challenge will go out to Baron Stonewall and Crimson the top 2
warriors below me not in my alliance. -- Dexter

As usual I will post the stats of all my graduated warriors from 81 so here is
Dexter:  9(+2)-9-11-12(+1)-21-4-21, Normal/Great, +2 Att, +1 Par, +1 Rip.  Favorites
are MO/VL, Dagger

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in SHADOWSPIRE since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Who can explain it?  Not 
you, not me, not HOUSE OF HEARTS' opponents, after watching them shoot up the ranks 
from 22nd to 5th.  Phhbltt!  Too much drinking and too little dodging gave OF WOLF 
AND MAN a 1-4-0!  I got a good laugh out of it!  Some people say I ramble too much, I 
don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  Well LITERATE LOONS moved 
up 3, to 21st.  What's with KARCH?  He actually beat FURRY FURY's PO'D PANDA, and 
walked away with 23 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at ORCAE ITA while 
they watched BRAIN clobber DECAPITATED BILL.  He lost 17 points and got bruised from 
objects thrown from the stands.  Another fighter (THE MAD RATTER 18-5-0) challenged 
another Duelmaster (DEXTER 23-15-0).  Life goes on.  I'm sure SHADOWSPIRE is excited 
about THE MAD RATTER, the new Duelmaster from RODENT CLAN.  (remember?)  But when 
you've seen as many as I have...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty 
gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, OF WOLF AND 
MAN!  Management must be dealin', as the boys at LA PENTARCHIE ain't reelin'!  OF 
WOLF AND MAN's mad!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged 
warrior, PO'D PANDA!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  '70 
CHARGER R/T expects the easy win by going 22 points down.  BALOR will find this a 
hard lesson!  '70 CHARGER R/T defeated BALOR.  I bet '70 CHARGER R/T could beat 
two-year-olds, too.  Well, OF WOLF AND MAN knows who to set their sights on.  Maybe 
UNHOLY KNIGHTS' DEATH'S MISTRESS is one of those gals who likes pain, or something.  
That's what she'll get next week, after challenging up 26 to YEAR OF THE CAT.  
DEATH'S MISTRESS subdued YEAR OF THE CAT (DEATH'S MISTRESS getting 20 points, 
too!)--Ooh baby!  Now dat I likes!  Keep challenging up 26 points, PHILIP K. DICK, 
and I won't have to write about you much longer.  DEADTEAR always accepts those kind 
of challenges...  DEADTEAR must not been fighting well, cause he lost to PHILIP K. 
DICK of LITERATE LOONS.  Sometimes you just have a bad day where things get, um, 
mixed up.  Maybe UNHOLY KNIGHTS' WYLD WYTCH is one of those gals who likes pain, or 
something.  That's what she'll get next week, after challenging up 26 to SPIREWOLF.  
I don't get it.  WYLD WYTCH goes and challenges SPIREWOLF, way above her, but gets 1 
points after she loses!  Is this a new strategy?   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  We all knew it had to happen sooner or later.  A 
warrior can't stick around with a 7-7-2, and KARCH easily took care of PO'D PANDA.  
Someone told THUNDERSAW that BATTLE GRUNTS never Bloodfeuded, that he'd have an easy 
kill.  Well, I'm sure whoever misled you is right sorry.  PINKY was plum wore out 
after EDWARD GOREY pounded 'im silly in a Bloodfeud.  ORCAE ITA'll have to get a 
little better before going after EDWARD GOREY again!  KANODRAUG larned his lesson 
(MELISSA JOAN taught it well), and we right likely won't be seein' 'im fight any 
HOUSE OF HEARTS members with the same gusto.  How long have I been here?  I got 
people to see, places to go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

                                     PERSONAL ADS

All -- Sorry for being so quiet in the actual personal ads for the last couple of
cycles.  Real life has been cutting into my hobby time and it sucks!  Hopefully you
are enjoying the SYP and Shadowspire the arena.  I just happen to love this place! --
Master Darque

Tripwire -- Congrats on Dexter.  It isn't easy to an AB out under the best
circumstances and especially hard in an arena like this. -- Master Darque

Ichabod, Billy, Gentle Ben, and Opinicus -- Welcome to Shadowspire!  I hope you enjoy
your stay in this wonderful arena. -- Master Darque

Oh Face -- Nice challenge, now I'm saying oooh. -- Soulripper

Master -- Like my arm do ya?  You can have one if you like, but it will cost ya. --
Death's Mistress

Anselm -- Why you given up, you don't need that arm any way? -- Decapitated Bill

Balor -- Should be babore, that was boring.  Next time will be different. -- Wyld
Wytch

Arena 81 -- Master wants me to cook for him, see you in hell. -- Dead Chef

Borne -- Thought you had me there in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th minute, had me desperate 3
times.  I am pretty sure I had you in the 5th though. -- Warg

Dagrdraug -- Bad matchup for you for sure. -- Dexter

Wyld Wytch -- That was a weird fight for sure, but I will take the win. -- Balor

Hunter -- Hard to block anything with no weapon!  I hate it when I can't pull my
backup.  Nicely done. -- Grath

Sponge Bath -- Wow, thanks for the skills. -- Dominatrix

Bad luck, Gron the smart Caveman my friend!  Always put something around your belt!
-- Rat-Loving Cat

By the way, it was funny to read the ad from Baron on this particular turn.

Yep I guess I owe you some explanation on that Kitten.  Actually, I wanted to keep
the Cat trend going one, and this one being kinda violent, I thougt about Apocalyptic
Cat, but I wanted something more original...so St John the Evangelist came to mind,
and I decided that a small Cat shared his revelation:  this is the one! -- Le
Pentarque

Dear Kellumbo, I'm moved to see that you care about my tender rookies, but you should
know that even without the DA, there is some kind of natural selection in my team, so
I guess that the last ones are not entirely helpless... -- Le Pentarque
P.S.  Did you notice all the scums up there??

Rat-Loving Cat -- You have got to be kidding me!  "Try it without a backup," the boss
said.  "You can fight without one if it comes to that, just try it."  Oh, that was a
bad idea. -- Gron da self-bloodied

Hairy Nose -- That was a bit simpler than expected.  Honestly, I really expected that
fight to last a little while.  Huh.  Care to try again? -- Baron Stonewall

Congrats to our Duelmaster Dexter on both the title and his new title of Lord
Protector! -- Dragonbane Guild

Kobe -- A nice challenge.  But I do have the suspicion that you could be dangerous.
-- Balliol Blackmoon

Angel Heart -- Really, it is nothing against you.  You just happen to be in the wrong
place in the standings at the wrong time. -- Spirewolf

All -- Sorry for our silence. You should hear more from us going forward.  For some
reason every time we flex our "Muscle" in here, karma pays us a visit. -- American Muscle

Trip -- It's been awhile, shall we? -- Elephant
P.S.  Grats on Dexter's title and invite.

Krazed Koala -- Grats on giving me my first loss.  You're on the radar now. -- R/T

Pentagonal Pink -- My manager tells you he won't challenge you anymore and you
challenge me 2 times in a row.  Well the heck with you and what my manager says, it's
on! -- Road Runner

Martin Luther -- Nothing personal, you gave me the best chance at victory.  Thanks
for the skills too! -- Stingray

Fritz -- When I heard I was fighting a guy name Fritz, I knew I had it.  Maybe you
should change your name to something cooler like Francis or something. -- Demon

Pauly -- Pull your sorry self away from WoW once in awhile and write an add or two.
Where's that Nuln and Indimar been hiding?  Get them to come back.  I could use some
easy wins. -- Elephant

Any inactive managers/teams -- If you're reading this, we'd sure love to have you
back in Shadowspire again.  We are almost at 30 again.  Help us get to 40 maybe even
50.  If your not reading this comeback anyway.

Vanek -- I appreciate your all arena PA regarding Shadowspire.  I sure hope it pays
off and more teams arrive. -- Elephant

TYRA and Kellumbo's Kids -- Or how about just Kellumbo, your pathetic.  Xinu was 24
points below and behind by 39 to 17 fights when you challenged and Killed him.  Is
this how you keep your record so high? -- Gentleben

Kellumbo Kids -- Once you are within range, your toast. -- Unholy Knights

Kellumbo -- Did I forget to tell you your pathetic? -- Gentleben

Kellumbo -- I hoe you got a good replacement this time, master is Hungry. -- Unholy
Knights

Cult of Bacchus -- Our condolences for your lost, I hope you got a good replacement.
-- Gentleben

Kellumbo -- In case you missed my earlier posts, your pathetic. -- Gentleben

Kellumblow -- If I ever saw you walking on the other side of the street with a
noticeable limp, I would cross the street and kick you in that leg so hard you would
fall down.  I would then step on your hand so you couldn't go anywhere and proceed
kick you in the face all the while laughing because that is the equivalent of your
managerial "skill" in this arena!  Go stroke your ego and enjoy your inflated record
and I'll see you the next 4 turns! -- DeGotti

The Draugs -- Rillion, congrats on your 5th kill.  Stop by any time to pick up your
Mannequin Chalice! -- DeGotti

8 October 2008
Hail Alastarians!
     Allow me to introduce myself.  I am Vanek, manager of the Warmasters in the No-
Tourney arena of Shadowspire.  I come to you with a public service announcement.
Some of you may already be aware of Shadowspire and some of you may not realize what
exactly you're missing.  This isn't your average arena.  This is Shadowspire, a large
and very active arena where role-playing is encouraged; many managers are active both
the personal ads and the D2 forums online, and excitement reigns with many grudge
matches from turn to turn.
     If you haven't checked arena 81 out, I urge you to do so.  After returning to
the game almost 2 years ago, after a 15+ year hiatus, I was looking to try and
recapture the magic of the game I remembered from my youth.  After finding my first
two arenas lacking, I almost quit the game again.  That was until I found the newly
opening Shadowspire.  It was here that I found the magic and excitement that I
remembered.  I truly love this arena and am sure you will too if given a chance.
Rookie or experienced veteran, it matters not.  Both have come together here to
successfully make an arena with plenty of competition to challenge the vets, yet with
the no tourney format, friendly enough for the novices to get their feet wet and
learn (or relearn) the game.  When I say that even novices can find success here, I
speak from personal experience.  I still consider myself a "newbie" to the game but
have found plenty of success with my first two Duelmaster titles and two ADM
graduates to date.
     I encourage you all to check out the D2 forums at www.reality.com/duel2/ and
look over both the Shadowspire newsletter and DM-81 forum section at the bottom of
the page.  The forum banter and personal ads help to clearly show that the "old
school" feel for the game is still alive and well here in Shadowspire.
     Also, if you're a former Shadowspire manager who is currently away, I encourage
you to return and help continue to make this one of the most entertaining arenas in
the game today!
     I hope to see many new faces in the near future and am excited to see the return
of some of the old faces whom have been away!
     Sincerely,
          Vanek

After 17 long years they are finally cutting the Cowboy loose.  Red & stinging, my
hand is now sufficiently slapped.  The state of Texas' boot print is stamped across
my ***... Uncle Damnit!  I am only 34 (think about it...) so plenty of time to
reinvent myself...prospects are great.  After wading through the culture shock I hope
to be amongst you soon, dishing out paper "w"itch slaps and taking my share of them
from you.  See you @ the Winter face '09?  Only time will tell.  Good luck. --

P.S.  Contact info coming soon for those who want it; email and all that other fun
sh...stuff.  *grin*  Sorry Ed.

                            Starting Nov 2008 (10 turns)

Anyone may participate; known alliances, new alliances, or temporary alliances
created solely to compete in the Turf War!  To participate, each alliance must:
        1.  Announce the alliance and the Captain of the alliance in the North Fork
            (DM 47) newsletter.
        2.  Announcements made on the D2 Forums will not be accepted.

Captains are responsible for:
        1.  Verifying those who wish to participate under the banner of their
            alliance;
        2.  Distribution of prizes should their alliance win the Turf War.
        3.  Submit one (1) RSI Roll-Up Certificate to participate

Participating managers who are not Captains must:
        1.  Submit one (1) RSI Roll-Up Certificate to participate
        2.  Announce their intent to compete with manager name, team name, and
            alliance they will represent in the North Fork (DM 47) newsletter.
            Announcement made on the D2 Forums will not be accepted.
               a.  No scores will be tabulated until a Gift Certificate is received.
                   No EXCEPTIONS.
               b.  Before a manager can compete, he/she must declare themselves in
                   the North Fork (DM 47) newsletter as stated above AND be verified
                   by the alliance Captain they will represent.
               c.  Only one (1) team per player may compete.  No multiple teams or
                   aliases will be allowed.  Violations will result in immediate
                   disqualification from the Turf War (so be sure to take any
                   multiple teams OFF of Team Maintenance).
               d.  Scoring will NOT be retroactive for teams that do not properly
                   declare or fail to send a Gift Certificate by Turn 1.  In other
                   words, if your Gift Certificate is not received until Turn 3 of
                   the Turf War, and you have fought on Turns 1 and 2, your scoring
                   will not begin until Turn 3.  All conditions must be met before
                   scoring will begin--declaration, verification, and Gift
                   Certificate received.
               e.  No declarations or verifications will be accepted after Turn 5 of
                   the Turf War.
               f.  For purposes of scoring, the moderators will score the Turf War
                   and settle any and all disputes as they arise.  Their decisions
                   will be final.

Scoring will be as follows for Fights:
                Win   Loss   Kill      Die
Challenge        +2     -2     +5       -5
Match Up         +1     -1     +1       -5
Bloodfeud        +2     -5     +5      -10
Champion         x2     x2     x2       x2
Dark Arena*     +10     -5     xx       xx
*After 2nd win, warrior scores no points for wins

Special Scoring Considerations for the Turf War are as follows:
Spy Report mention (team name only)              +2
Style Master                                     +2
Duelmaster                                       +2

Champions:
     1.  A Champion may be declared, but one is not mandatory.
     2.  Only one Champion allowed per manager at any given time.
     3.  Champions that graduate or are killed by another warrior in the arena, but
         not the Dark Arena, may be replaced.
     4.  Champions must be in the Adepts bracket or lower on the turn they are
         declared, and may NOT have gone above Adepts level at any time; this
         includes teams transferred into North Fork for the Turf War.

Bloodfeuds:
        1.  Bloodfeuds will score points on all four (4) turns.
        2.  There is no limit to which warrior may bloodfeud or how often.

Tournament Considerations:
        1.  Tournament participation is ALLOWED and encouraged.
        2.  Tournament Victors won during the course of the contest will gain a one
            (1) time bonus of 25 points.  This bonus will apply EACH time a
            warrior(s) wins such status.
        3.  Tournament Champions won during the course of the contest will gain a one
            (1) time bonus of 50 points.  This bonus will apply EACH time a
            warrior(s) win such status.
        4.  Points for TVs and TCs will be applied the Turn after RSI posts
            tournament results in the North Fork (DM 47) newsletter (i.e., if the
            results post on North Fork turn 275, points will be credited on North
            Fork turn 276 to the applicable teams).

Special Considerations:
        1.  Each alliance begins the Turf War with zero (0) points.
        2.  There will be NO alliance or team changes once the contest has begun.  If
            you begin the Turf War with Alliance A, you must end the Turf War with
            Alliance A.  If you begin the Turf War with Team A, you must end the Turf
            War with Team A.
        3.  There will be a maximum of seven (7) teams allowed per alliance for the
            Turf War.
        4.  The Dark Arena may be used on the first turn only, of every warrior,
            without penalty.

Prizes:
The Turf War is a "winner take all" contest.  All prizes and 100% of the Gift
Certificates will be awarded to the Captain of the winning alliance.  It is the

responsibility of the Captain to distribute Gift Certificates.  Moderators will
submit a list of each manager on the winning alliance to RSI at the completion of the
contest for the non-Certificate prizes.

The following prizes have been secured from RSI:
        1.  Renaming of the North Fork (DM 47) arena;
        2.  Renaming of Dark Arena Monsters (one for each manager in the winning
            alliance);
        3.  Known Favorites for one warrior on each team of the winning alliance
            (warrior must be ranked Initiate or above, must be alive, and must have
            at least one arena fight to receive this award).
        4.  +1 Skill bonus potion for each manager on the winning alliance.  Bonus
            potion must be applied to a living warrior from (DM 47)
        5.  +1 Skill bonus potion (one) for each manager who fights in all 10 rounds
            AND 45 fights of the Turf War.  Bonus potion must be applied to a living

These awards will be listed by the Moderator for claiming from RSI (Lee) within 4
turns of the end of TW VI.
